't -- workers union, it's been a long day. we're here to say a few words for the record to the board we received correspondence from sf mta for a service reduction on the day before christmas and the week after, and subsequently that week in between new year's and christmas. and we didn't know if the board or the city knew. and this is something that was attempted a couple of weeks back with the thanksgiving week, in which we disapproved because the level of ridership that happens after or before the holiday actually is increased with increased shopping and commerce in the union square area, also with people still have to go to work. we've been kind of forced into the situation where they want to meet and confer over this for us to agree to the service cut and i don't think it follows the tenants of the traffic first quality to keep the level of service per the 1996 levels. also the budget includes funding to have a regular service schedule before and after the holiday. that was passed by this board and approved and we don't know why mta feels it's their prerogative to cut that service that has
see the turmoil. we overlook the fact that there's turmoil inside his house, turmoil inside his union, the new york riots. this is a president that had to stare down enemies on all sides. >> true. >> the other thing that the movie does is that all of these characteristics that lincoln represents, patience, strategic delay, are things that in our society now we would castigate a candidate for you're slow to make decisions, you change your mind all the time. it's one of those -- unfortunately and i think it's relevant for both candidates, there are aspects that we see in the movie from lincoln that candidates cannot do now because they would be criticized for having lack of leadership. >> and for complete synergy the film is based in part on doris kearns goodwin's book "team of rivals" and doris writes in the latest issue of "time" how lincoln was able to connect with every day americansshe writes "the white house then was so much more open than it is today. people wanting government jobs would line up by the hundreds outside lincoln's office, each with a story to tell, a reason his fam
, components used in manufacturing. the international longshoreman's union will continue to deliver certain other kinds of things like military cargo, some perishables and some mail but no container ships, that the trucks transport across america. frozen foods, wholesale goods, clothings. the dispute for 15,000 dock workers represented by the longshoremen, is something, cargo fees go on to each container and fees supplement salaries and pay for workers. the companies want a chance to cap the fees, set a maximum limit. the union says that is off limits. no way we're not going to do that. maritime management representing ports taking a hard long. apparently like a lockout what they do in sports. they turned down an offer by the union to extend the current contract to the end of january. so they're kind of putting pressure on them. the union in a very interesting situation. they're affiliated with the afl-cio, stalwart allies of the obama administration. would they really hurt the economy this way? because, a similar strike for 10 days along the west coast ten years ago cost a billion dollars

hostess closed its doors, claiming a strike by a bakers' union put the company out of business. the brand laid off 18,000 employees. chuck coppola picks up the story from there. nothing draws a crowd like the last of anything. even if its made of artificial ingredients such as cellulose gum, which is also found in rocket fuel. such is the send-off consumers are giving to the last twinkies made for now in the u.s. and sent off to market. a sugar-rush worthy of black friday fell throughout chicago supermarket chain jewel-osco. the last 20,000 boxes of twinkies distributed by hostess brands were snapped up as if it was the fountain of youth in a sponge cake. "i used to eat them. when i was a kid, i enjoyed them." hostess brands filed for bankruptcy november 16th. since then, a cream-filled wave of nostalga has transformed the junk food into an icon of americana to be preserved - as if it needed help being preserved.

with the unions, we all know that, but in this case, a strike that really could have devastating consequences on the economy, particularly in the middle of the fiscal cliff negotiations. do you think the president might be more even-handed here dealing with the unions? >> well, i really don't know. you never know what this president is going to say and what policies are going to come out, but the longshoremen is an influential union. to see him go on the other side of it would be surprising, probably take a step back and not intervene too much. so, you know, it's a look and see and a wait and see, quite frankly. but if this does happen, the ripple effect is going to be tremendous because you're going to see prices go up there as well. and that's going to be passed onto the consumer. so, either way, we're talking about more money out of the pocket of individuals, regardless, you know, how this thing, you know, comes to to be. >> and this could also have serious effects on commodities markets, particularly oil. one of the ports affected houston. a lot of oil goes in on ought of that port. >> ye
the soviet union. so states like mississippi, states like georgia and texas and florida and southern california, arizona, north carolina are all being transformed in the post-world war ii period by this historic shift in population and political influence. just think about it. really does three from 1964 to two dozen eight could be thought of as kind of the carried of sun belt dominance in american presidential history. if you think about every president elected from 1964-2008 comes from a state of the sun belt. lyndon johnson from texas, richard nixon from california, gerald ford was never elected. he was not even elected vice president. he was a michigan. jimmy carter from georgia. ronald reagan from california. first george bush, texas by a connecticut. bill clinton from arkansas, and the second bush from texas. so 2008 is in some ways a watershed election. it is this 40 year period of sun belt dominance. and there were issues that are critical in the politics that develop, that came out of the sun belt. they tended to have a conservative task to them. they tended to be oriented a

or not it's permissible, you know, the way that you get out of the union once you're in is not something i think wisely that the founding fathers decided to, you know, address. and it left the question open, and lincoln's interpretation which i agree with is, you know, you can't opt out of civilization; you can't opt out of the social contract. and secession is another name for the beginnings of a kind of social disintegration. i mean, by the end of the civil war alabama was threatening to secede from the confederacy. just a couple of weeks ago when the texans said, "we're going to secede from the united states," austin said, "well, good, then we're seceding from texas." and that's the way it tends to go, it will disintegrate. and the idea of preserving a union, the mystical idea of a union, i think he got how essential that was for the whole thing to work. so the cost was horrendous, i mean, we now think maybe as many as 800,000, not the 600,000. and this is, i think a very gentle man who suffered terribly at the thought of this kind of dying and death and, you know, was devoted to his so
